well it’s been a few weeks since I actually put my “pen to paper” so to speak. and honestly I feel like I have so much on my heart, so much God has revealed, so much I’ve been convicted of, so much funk that’s coming out of me that I don’t even know where to start.
But one thing is for sure
I want MORE OF JESUS and LESS OF ME.
more of His kingdom, less of my junk.
more of His word, less of the crap I waste my time watching.
less of what I want, more of what God wants.
it’s a tough road my friends. nothing in this life is about me. so why do I make it all about me? I want my life to be about making JESUS known. not making myself known, not pushing my ideas on others, but simply GIVING PEOPLE JESUS. I want to be a GOD CHASER. a friend sent me a picture of a page in a book she’s reading and it said this about being a God chaser, “God chasers reveal their faith by the way they run”. It went on to say that we cannot be distracted or detoured from our objective because we firmly believe that God is going to reward our pursuit .
I want to be in a full sprint pursuit of God. I want people to know my Jesus by the way I LIVE my life. not just by the way I TALK about my life, or by my good deeds, but by the way I live in my everyday life. and I have a long way to go. but I’m thankful for Gods grace + His mercies that are new every morning.
and just a little side note, my besties Jenna & Wendy and I started leading a small group through Jen Hatmakers 7 study this week. and let me just say it’s already rocking me to the core. [aka, didn’t wear make up all day because the tears were constantly flowing…this reading and reflection is powerful yall]
so that’s all for now. just a confession that sometimes [ok, more than sometimes] I make life about me. when it’s so much bigger than that.
here’s to running full sprint in the pursuit of God…
